Painted Poppies first in the open air and sunshine, and then in the studio.
8×10” and 6×8” acrylic on canvas
I’m thinking of sunshine and flowers, while our first blizzard hits. Yesterday our yard was a healthy green. Today it wears a blanket of snow, but it’s pretty too.
The first image is the under painting, and the second is the finished work. 8″x10″ acrylic on canvas board.
This palette knife painting represents a rose from memory. In the BEFORE version I was satisfied with the composition, but not the colors I don’t know why I use the dull brown. Anyway, I looked at it today by chance, and thought I want to fix this. The texture has a bit different effect covering over the top of existing texture but I’m glad I went for it! I may try this again from scratch sometime.
6″x 6″ gallery edge stretched canvas
On my easel today is a painting of Begonias, stirred into action by the Spring fever I’m feeling. 6″x6″ stretch Gallery Wrap Canvas.
One thing I look forward to every Spring is my first trip to Medary Acres, our local Nursery. This is where I went looking for my subject.
Posing with my subject is a persistent Merlin the Cat. I’ve just decided he should be the star of a new painting, coming soon!
